Cool, This is a very basic light-bodied brew that can be manipulated which ever way you want, i.e. malty, balanced, bitter, dry, etc. I'm going to be toying around with this recipe a lot.

Brew on!

I have this one fermenting right now! I liked the simplicity of it and I already had almost everythig but the Yakima so it cost me very little to brew up.

Thanks for the posted recipe.

I can't find Yakima Goldings at my LHBS. What would be a good replacement?

I brewed this recipe with East Kent Goldlings since I couldn't find Yakima. Turned out awsome. My favorite beer yet. Perfectly balanced.

Thanks for the recipe!
